A New Issue Of “Grindhouse Purgatory” Is Here!
Marilyn Chambers. Mary Millington. Jayne Mansfield – and so much more!
Pete Chiarella, the legendary expert on “all things 42nd Street”, is out with another Grindhouse Purgatory magazine and it’s a winner!
Issue #18 is here and it’s packed with great articles about the greatest performers in front of and behind the “grind house cinema” cameras!
Sure, Marilyn Chambers got her start on a box of Ivory Snow detergent, but 42nd St. Pete’s got the story of her glory years in Times Square!
There’s a great article about that “golden age” of porn, when the films played to packed houses, and made performers like Chambers a household name!
Also in this issue, the legendary “Black Emmanuelle” herself, Laura Gemser!
I own both of these films and all I can say is…WOW!
Gemser was one of my “sex kittens” profiled on my blog, and you can check that out as well:
I’ve had the good fortune to be featured in previous issues of “Grindhouse Purgatory” and have an article set for the next issue as well…and thanks to this terrific magazine, I discovered the legendary Mary Millington:
This new article in the latest issue takes an in-depth look at “saucy” cinema thanks to the Brits, and Millington was one of the biggest stars of that time, so there is a lot of great insight in this article!
She was really something, and a new box set of her films digs into her films – you can see more about the box set here:
There are more than twenty articles in the latest issue of Grindhouse Purgatory, and it’s well worth the low price of only $10!
I mean, look at these! So much history and insight into cult cinema that would otherwise be forgotten, and articles about some of the great sex symbols of all time as well!
Jayne Mansfield has been lost a bit to time, but his new article corrects that with a terrific in-depth look at her life, career and impact on cult cinema!
She was wild at a time when very few had the nerve to be – and I looked at some of her best films as well:
Happy Cloud Media releases the “Grindhouse Purgatory” series, as well as other great books about cult cinema…and you can reach out to 42nd St. Pete directly to order a copy as well!

As I said, I have been lucky enough to be included in previous issues of the magazine:
Look at everyone in this issue! My story made the front cover too! I got to talk to Cult Movie Queen Judy Matheson, who appeared in some great 70’s horror films – she LOVED the article and the cover of that issue, and you can see that issue here:
